Adaptation under Fire: How Militaries Change in Wartime Audiobook

Adaptation under Fire: How Militaries Change in Wartime

Author: Lt. General David Barno, Nora Bensahel Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: September 2021

Every military must prepare for future wars despite not really knowing the shape such wars will ultimately take. In the face of such great uncertainty, militaries must be able to adapt rapidly in order to win. Adaptation under Fire identifies the characteristics that make militaries more adaptable, illustrated through historical examples and the recent wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. Authors David Barno and Nora Bensahel argue that militaries facing unknown future conflicts must nevertheless make choices about the type of doctrine that their units will use, the weapons and equipment they will purchase, and the kind of leaders they will select and develop to guide the force to victory. Barno and Bensahel start by providing a framework for understanding adaptation and include historical cases of success and failure. Next, they examine US military adaptation during the nation's recent wars, and explain why certain forms of adaptation have proven problematic. In the final section, Barno and Bensahel conclude that the US military must become much more adaptable in order to address the fast-changing security challenges of the future, and they offer recommendations on how to do so before it is too late.

The Eye of the Tigress Audiobook

The Eye of the Tigress

Author: Paul Coggins Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: August 2021

Cash McCahill, a criminal lawyer at the top of his game, turns down cartel clients and their dirty money. That is, until a lethal drug czarina, La Tigra, forces him to defend an unwinnable case and win it-or else. Criminal defense lawyer Cash McCahill pleads for his life before a jury of one: La Tigra, the lethal leader of a drug cartel. To avoid ending up as an appetizer for her pet tiger, he promises to defend the case of her choice and win it. When La Tigra calls in the chit, Cash has no way out of cartel hell, except death. Lose at trial, and he will pay with his life. Win, and he becomes the go-to mouthpiece for merchants of death-surviving only as long as he keeps winning. A rival cartel moves into Texas and gives Cash a choice: work for the new killers on the block or die at La Tigra's side. Bombings on both sides of the border put Cash in the crosshairs of two gangs and two governments. As if there is a difference. To escape the clutches of the cops and the cartels, Cash must broker a ceasefire, but peace and his deliverance will come with a heavy price.

The Storm Is Upon Us: How QAnon Became a Movement, Cult, and Conspiracy Theory of Everything Audiobook

The Storm Is Upon Us: How QAnon Became a Movement, Cult, and Conspiracy Theory of Everything

Author: Mike Rothschild Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: June 2021

Its messaging can seem cryptic, even nonsensical, yet for tens of thousands of people, it explains everything: What is QAnon, where did it come from, and is the Capitol insurgency a sign of where it's going next? On October 5, 2017, President Trump made a cryptic remark in the State Dining Room at a gathering of military officials. He said it felt like "the calm before the storm"-then refused to elaborate as puzzled journalists asked him to explain. But on the infamous message boards of 4chan, a mysterious poster going by "Q Clearance Patriot," who claimed to be in "military intelligence," began the elaboration on their own. In the days that followed, Q's wild yarn explaining Trump's remarks began to rival the sinister intricacies of a Tom Clancy novel, while satisfying the deepest desires of MAGA-America. But did any of what Q predicted come to pass? No. Did that stop people from clinging to every word they were reading, expanding its mythology, and promoting it wider and wider? No. Why not? Who were these rapt listeners? How do they reconcile their world view with the America they see around them? Why do their numbers keep growing? Mike Rothschild, a journalist specializing in conspiracy theories, has been collecting their stories for years, and through interviews with QAnon converts, apostates, and victims, as well as psychologists, sociologists, and academics, he is uniquely equipped to explain the movement and its followers. In The Storm Is Upon Us, he takes listeners from the background conspiracies and cults that fed the Q phenomenon, to its embrace by right-wing media and Donald Trump, through the rending of families as loved ones became addicted to Q's increasingly violent rhetoric, to the storming of the Capitol, and on. And as the phenomenon shows no sign of calming, despite Trump's loss of the presidency-with everyone from Baby Boomers to Millennial moms proving susceptible to its messaging-and politicians starting to openly espouse its ideology, Rothschild makes a compelling case that mocking the seeming madness of QAnon will get us nowhere. Rather, his impassioned reportage makes clear that it's time to figure out what QAnon really is-because QAnon and its relentlessly dark theory of everything isn't done yet.

Laughing at Myself: My Education in Congress, on the Farm, and at the Movies Audiobook

Laughing at Myself: My Education in Congress, on the Farm, and at the Movies

Author: Dan Glickman Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: May 2021

Where else but in America could a Jewish kid from Kansas, son of self-made, entrepreneurial parents and a grandson of Russian and Eastern European immigrants, end up as a congressman, secretary of agriculture, and chief lobbyist for Hollywood? In Laughing at Myself: My Education in Congress, on the Farm, and at the Movies, Dan Glickman tells his story of a classical family background, religious heritage, and 'Midwestern-nice' roots, and how it led to a long and successful career in public service. Dan has successfully navigated the worlds of congressional politics, cabinet-level administration, and the entertainment industry and offers listeners the many tricks of the trade he has learned over the years, which will inform the understanding of citizens and help aspiring politicians seeking alternatives to the current crisis of partisanship. Dan is convinced that the toxicity seen in our current political culture and public discourse can be mitigated by the principles that have guided his life-a strong sense of humor (specifically an ability to laugh at himself), respect and civility for those who have different points of view, a belief system founded on values based on the Golden Rule, and a steadfast commitment to solve problems rather than create irreconcilable conflicts.

Baseball in the Garden of Eden: The Secret History of the Early Game Audiobook

Baseball in the Garden of Eden: The Secret History of the Early Game

Author: John Thorn Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: May 2021

The 'fresh and fascinating' (The Plain Dealer, Cleveland), 'splendid and brilliant' (Philadelphia Daily News) history of the early game by the Official Historian of Major League Baseball. Who really invented baseball? Forget Abner Doubleday at Cooperstown and Alexander Cartwright. Meet Daniel Lucius Adams, William Rufus Wheaton, and other fascinating figures buried beneath the falsehoods that have accrued around baseball's origins. This is the true story of how organized baseball started, how gambling shaped the game from its earliest days, and how it became our national pastime and our national mirror. Baseball in the Garden of Eden draws on original research to tell how the game evolved from other bat-and-ball games and gradually supplanted them, how the New York game came to dominate other variants, and how gambling and secret professionalism promoted and plagued the game. From a religious society's plot to anoint Abner Doubleday as baseball's progenitor to a set of scoundrels and scandals far more pervasive than the Black Sox Fix of 1919, this entertaining book is full of surprises. Even the most expert baseball fan will learn something new with almost every page.

Author: David Gordon Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: May 2021

A special forces agent-turned-strip club bouncer with a side hustle as a hitman for the New York mob seeks out a deadly drug lord in the poppy fields of Afghanistan. Joe is a retired Special Forces operative with a bad case of PTSD and some substance abuse issues, trying to rebuild a simple life as a strip club bouncer living with his grandmother in Queens. But this simple life is constantly complicated by the fact that, at the invitation of his childhood friend, now a Mafia boss, Joe also moonlights as a fixer for the most powerful crime families in town. In his newest assignment, Joe is sent to take out a shadowy figure named Zahir, who made the New York crime families' hit list by hijacking heroin shipments bound for US dealers and funneling the money to terror cells. Which means that Gotham's underbelly has brought Joe back to the one place in the world he doesn't want to revisit: the poppy fields of Afghanistan, a country that left permanent scars on his body as well as his psyche. If he were alone, his past demons might be too much to bear-but luckily, his occasional partner Yelena, a master thief whose skills have found her wanted from Brighton Beach to Moscow, is by his side.

Normandiefront: D-Day to Saint-Lô Through German Eyes Audiobook

Normandiefront: D-Day to Saint-Lô Through German Eyes

Author: Bruce Conner, Vince Milano Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: March 2021

Based on firsthand testimony, this is the story of how one German division changed the course of the invasion, and almost the war, featuring previously unpublished photographs from participants. In the cold morning of June 6, 1944, thousands of German soldiers were in position from Port en Bessin eastward past Colleville on the Normandy coast, aware that a massive invasion force was heading straight for them, although according to Allied Intelligence, they shouldn't have been there. The presence of 352 Division meant that the number of defenders was literally double the number expected-and on the best fortified of all the invasion beaches. This infantry division would ensure the invaders would pay a massive price to take Omaha Beach. There were veterans from the Russian front among them and they were well trained and equipped. What makes this account of the bloody struggle unique is that it is told from the German standpoint, using firsthand testimony of German combatants. There are not many of them still alive and these accounts have been painstakingly collected by the authors over many years . . .

Pandemics: A Very Short Introduction Audiobook

Pandemics: A Very Short Introduction

Author: Christian W. Mcmillen Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: February 2021

Christian W. McMillen provides a concise yet comprehensive account of pandemics throughout human history, illustrating how pandemic disease has shaped history and, at the same time, social behavior has influenced pandemic disease. This Very Short Introduction describes history's major pandemics-plague, tuberculosis, malaria, smallpox, cholera, influenza, and HIV/AIDS-highlighting how each disease's biological characteristics affected its pandemic development. McMillen discusses state responses to pandemics, such as quarantine, isolation, travel restrictions, and other forms of social control, and pays special attention to the rise of public health and the explosion of medical research in the wake of pandemics, especially as the germ theory of disease emerged in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. Today, medicine is able to control all of these diseases, yet some of them are still devastating in much of the developing world. By assessing the relationship between poverty and disease and the geography of epidemics, McMillen offers an outspoken and thought-provoking point of view on the necessity for global governments to learn from past experiences and proactively cooperate to prevent any future epidemic.

The Dawn of a Nazi Moon: Book One Audiobook

The Dawn of a Nazi Moon: Book One

Author: Douglas Mackinnon Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: December 2020

An alleged real-life secret revealed by a former Soviet general is the foundation for the most shocking Nazi alternative history novel of all time. 'Madam President. The nuclear bombs just detonated in China, Russia, and off the coast of the United States did not, I repeat, did not originate from the planet Earth. It is my opinion, and the opinion of everyone here, that the Earth can no longer be defended from the Earth.' President Carolina Garcia sat in the Roosevelt Room across the hall from the Oval Office and gazed at the four people sitting opposite her in unblinking shock. As she looked at the Secretary of Defense, the Director of the Central Intelligence Agency, the Director of the FBI, and the Administrator of NASA, her mind was so scrambled that she could not even remember which one just uttered the surreal and blood-chilling identity of the enemy which just attacked earth.

The Saddest Words: William Faulkner's Civil War Audiobook

The Saddest Words: William Faulkner's Civil War

Author: Michael Gorra Narrator: Joe Barrett Release Date: December 2020

How do we read William Faulkner in the twenty-first century? asks Michael Gorra, one of America's most preeminent literary critics. Should we still read William Faulkner in this new century? What can his works tell us about the legacy of slavery and the Civil War, that central quarrel in our nation's history? These are the provocative questions that Michael Gorra asks in this historic portrait of the novelist and his world. Born in 1897 in Mississippi, Faulkner wrote such iconic novels as Absalom, Absalom! and The Sound and the Fury, creating in Yoknapatawpha County the richest gallery of characters in American fiction, his achievements culminating in the 1949 Nobel Prize in Literature. But given his works' echo of 'Lost Cause' romanticism, his depiction of black characters and black speech, and his rendering of race relations in a largely unreconstructed South, Faulkner demands a sobering reevaluation. Interweaving biography, absorbing literary criticism, and rich travelogue, The Saddest Words recontextualizes Faulkner, revealing a civil war within him, while examining the most plangent cultural issues facing American literature today.
